WINNIPEG, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods announced today that their facility has achieved British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standards Certification. The largest hemp food manufacturer in the world to grow, make, and sell their own hemp foods, BRC Certification secures Manitoba Harvest (www.manitobaharvest.com) as the only globally "certifiable" player in the hemp foods industry.
BRC Certification is the leading global food safety and quality
certification program and currently used by suppliers in over 100
countries. BRC food technical standards facilitate standardization of
quality, safety, operational criteria and manufacturers' fulfillment of
legal obligations. BRC has become the framework upon which
retailers/companies base their supplier assessment - many retailers
mandating that they will only consider doing business with BRC
"Receiving BRC Certification showcases our commitment to food safety and
quality. It helps ensure our customers' get the most delicious and
nutritious hemp food in the market," explained Mike Fata, Chief
Executive Officer and Co-founder of Manitoba Harvest. "We've been in
hemp for a long time, and feel our learning curve has positioned us as
the experts in the field. Frankly, if a school had a hemp production
program we'd already have our PhD."
To receive BRC Certification, Manitoba Harvest underwent a voluntary
audit by a third-party Certification Body that ensures the production,
packaging, storage and distribution of safe food and consumer products.
The Certification is meant to reassure retailers and end consumers of
the capability and competence of Manitoba Harvest's facility and
therefore the integrity of Manitoba Harvest products.
Celebrating their 15th year in business, Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods is the world's largest hemp food manufacturer to grow, make and sell their own brand of hemp food products. Manitoba Harvest is proud to offer award-winning products like Hemp Hearts (raw shelled hemp seeds) and HEMP PRO 70 ® (hemp protein concentrate). www.manitobaharvest.com. http://www.facebook.com/manitobaharvesthempfoodsandoils.
